sitting in this auditorium, those in overflow rooms, those who are listening to us or watching us in various media and who will intersect us on the internet sometime in the next days and weeks. i'm jane harman, president and ceo of the wilson center. and as some of you know, we recently joined forces with npr to create this year-long public event series that we call the national conversation. npr's president and ceo, my california buddy gary knell who has a muppet, which is an improvement on himself, named after him for his roles, his role before on running sesame street is sitting in the front row, as is joe gildenhorn, ambassador joe gildenhorn who is the chairman of the wilson center board of trustees. and i'd like to welcome many other friends here today. my hope is that this series will provide the public, that is you, with new opportunities to engage in much-needed civil discourse free from spin, imagine that in this election season, in the safe political space that the wilson center provides. for today's event, the wilson center and npr, partnered with the chicago council o
to discuss a possible drawdown with u.s. secretary general. for now, though the fighting continues. israeli air strikes killed nearly 40 people today, groups in gaza respondented by shooting nearly 100 rockets in israel. and on the israeli side of the border things appeared remarkably calm today. this picture has caused a stir online. it shows israelis watching passively as in-coming missiles sail over head. so why to israelis feel so comfortable out in the open as missiles fly above them? because of something called the iron dome. it's a defense system that uses radar to detect in-coming rockets and determine where they will land. if it is headed towards a populated area the gunner shoots the missile out of the sky. it is particularly good at detecting the smaller, older rockets that the palestinians use. iron dome has had an incredible 85% successful rate against the 300 rockets the palestinians have fired. the gulf missiles intercepted less than 10% of their target. iron dome has always made a huge difference. as of today, israel has only reported three deaths. in
difficult, the u.s. has no diplomatic relationship with hamas. a group it labels a terrorist organization. so egyptian president mohammed morsi is playing a key role as intermediary. >> the critical challenge is going to be to make sure that everybody understands the commitments that have been made, the same way, so there's no misunderstandings. >> reporter: even with diplomacy in high gear, today was one of the st violence days yet. an israeli soldier was killed. the first since the conflict began. 150 incoming rockets, 30 alone aimed at a southern town. did you run down the stairs? >> yes. >> reporter: this family narrowly escaped a direct hit on their house. how many people were in the house at the time? >> six people. >> reporter: six people? >> i, my wife and four children. >> just in the last week -- >> reporter: the israeli government says their goal is to stop rocket attacks like this for good. >> we don't think any country in the world would deal with such a situation. >> reporter: near the border, israeli soldiers still wait anxiously for an order to inv e invade. >> we're abou

" starts right now. >>> good evening and thanks for staying with us for the next hour. happy thanksgiving eve. this is one of those days when no news is supposed to happen. but it turns out there is a lot of news today, including a lot of news to be thankful for. not least the cease-fire in the middle east that broke out this evening, which we will be getting a live report on from richard engel in gaza in just a couple of minutes. but i'm also thankful tonight to be able to report that the election has finally concluded in arizona, where it took them 14 days to count votes and announce the results this year. in the end, it turns out that all three competitive congressional races in that state went to the democrats. but the competitive u.s. senate race for republican jon kyl's old seat, that seat stayed republican. and yes, the county sheriff who did the whole taxpayer-funded stunt about having his cold case posse uncover the fraud of president obama's birth certificate, that sheriff did get re-elected, barely. last time he won by a 13-point landslide. this time he won by much less than th
. egyptians have flooded into the streets in protest. joining us to talk about egypt and that region and beyond, fox news military analyst, general jack keane, thank you for coming in. what do you make of morsi's very bold move with the negotiations between the executive and the judicial branch. but observingly, he is saying, i am all powerful, the courts can't stop me. >> it's a bold move. he is consolidating power. he has been doing it since his inception. he ransacked the military brass. he did that after taking counsel of officers, inside the military, alm -- assuming they would not resist if he took the old bosses out. they have economic interests. he hopes that that military will stay neutral and not get into the streets and deal with deposing him or causing him political internal problems. the other calculations he has, he has been taking out the 61 constitutionalists and he took the lead prosecutor and other key officials out. so he now owns the reins of government in egypt. i think the other calculation he has, why is he doing this on the heels of the hamas cease-fire? excus
. they also released the menu of what they were eating. but give us the substance. >> that's right. turkey chili was on the menu. perhaps thanksgiving leftovers. i talked to a republican source who said this was a friendly meeting between the president and mitt romney. but mitt romney slipped in and out of washington so quickly and quietly that it was a sign that he was ready to accept the president's offer to show bipartisanship but not quite ready to jump back on the national stage. it seems the most unexpected moment of the day came as mitt romney's vehicle arrived at the white house as a window was rolled down, an unknown man approached the vehicle and started shouting. until he was whisked away by the secret service. still, the ever punctual romney was right on time for his private lunch with the president. and be private, the white house means just that. no reporters. >> any chance your briefing might be interrupted by a joint appearance? >> no. >> we've seen other presidents and those that they've defeated in presidential election contests together. why not something for historical

"the rachel maddow show" starts right now. good evening, rachel. >>> we will know that is the case if we find some kind of mexican wrestling mask in the next pete souza photo from the last year in the former soviet republic of georgia, which to refresh your memory is here sort of wedged into a port of the world called eurasia, in his struggling young nation of georgia, a 75-year-old grandmother was out looking for scrap metal and she happened by some dark miracle she happened upon the cable that connects much of that region to the outside world. the cable that she found when she was looking for scrap metal happened to carry the internet. the whole internet service for that whole part of the world. and because this woman was poor and she thought the cable maybe contained some valuable copper that maybe she could sell, she cut that cable with a shovel. and with that one mighty thwack, that 75-year-old woman severed almost all of the internet in the next door nation of armenia and also in parts of her own nation of geo
